About This Item

Cambridge University Library, [Cambridge], first separate edition, 1975. Laminated illustrated wrappers, 8vo,. 23, [3] pp, plates facs. (some coloured),. [Reprinted with minor alterations from the Encyclopedia of Library and Information Science vol. 4 pp 50-70] From the text: "The earliest specific references to a library of the University at Cambridge are to be found in the wills (both proved in March 1416) of William Hunden and William Loring, the former bequeathing to it three volumes "to remain forever in the new library at Cambridge for the use of graduates and scholars in residence," and the latter all his books of civil law "to remain forever in the common library of the scholars of the University." There are, of course, earlier references to books in the possession of the university. Richard de Lyng, three times Chancellor of the University, who died in 1355, is included as the donor of a chest of books.. Booklabel of the bibliophile A R A Hobson on front inside wrapper, with a manuscript note from the author on a CUL card thanking Hobson for "your splendid lectures" (Hobson had given the 1974-75 Sandars Lectures - "Some book collectors, booksellers and binders in sixteenth century Italy.") Endpapers faintly foxed, otherwise Near Very Good.
